I'm an artist and I worked in the book business for nearly 10 years. I love reading, I love the author-friends that I made along the way, and I can't wait to keep up with their new projects.
I also have a love of small businesses, having worked for independent bookstores the majority of my time. Authors are their own independent businesses and I'm happy to support them. I'm in the process of putting together a 'Friends' page on my own website (which showcases my artwork) for my friends who have their own projects that they're working on. Just my way of saying Thank You.
